During a round of Hold’em, Matt Elsby called all in under the gun for 5,000, Aaron Kupin raised from the cutoff to 12,000, and David Shmuel called from the big blind.

There was 15,000 in the main pot, and 14,000 more in the side pot between Shmuel and Kupin.

The flop came Kd10h3d, Shmuel checked, Kupin bet 6,000, and Shmuel called.

The turn card was the 10d, Shmuel bet 12,000, and Kupin folded. Shmuel took the side pot.

For the main pot, Elsby showed 2d2c (two pair, tens and deuces), and he need a deuce on the river to stay alive against Shmuel’s Kc9d (two pair, kings and tens).

The river card was the 4h, and Shmuel won the pot with his higher two pair to eliminate Elsby a few spots shy of the money.

David Shmuel  –  180,000  (15 BB)
Matt Elsby  –  Eliminated

With 14 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 91,000 (8 big bets).
